"480 Minutes" - New Music From The Dø

Happy Friday. For those of us in the U.S., this is the last full week of work before the Thanksgiving holiday. For those who are unfamiliar,  the Thanksgiving holiday is a socially acceptable day to pig out.  It's like going to the movies, only better, as one also gets immunity for falling asleep on the couch in the middle of the afternoon while watching gigantic men in brightly colored tights and helmets violently crash into each other with a reckless abandon usually reserved for lemmings at cliffs.

As usual, there will not be a new edition of 480 Minutes next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. That said, today the Friday live marathon broadcast is coming at you live and in person from 9 a.m. from 5 p.m. Pacific Time. During 480 Minutes each Friday we highlight all of the new playlist additions that will find their way into playlists next week, surrounded by other recent playlist additions, and older indie rock noise pop favorites as well.  During live show hours (Fridays, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) please get in touch in real-time with requests, comments, news, kudos, curses, whathaveyou:
